Becoming a rabbit owner can be exciting and relaxing. But on the other hand its difficult reason being bunnies are fragile creatures.
But if you know very well what you are doing then you will be a happy owner. If you are new to keeping bunnies then its recommended that you learn all you can in raising these creatures. Once you learn about raising bunnies then you will be prepared for what is ahead of you.
Bunnies are high maintenance creatures which need a lot of attention and affection. Although they are cuty creatures that you may think are not harmful, in fact they can hurt you if you handle them in a manner they don’t like. Their back legs are strong and they use them to kick you off. So before you make the decision in raising rabbits they are some things that you may want to learn.
– There are different sizes of bunnies. They are small bunnies that may be kept in small houses and are not best for meat production. Then they are the bigger ones that require a lot of space to reside. These are the bunnies that are raised for the production of meat and reproduction.
– When it comes to feeding bunnies you need to understand that they are non-meat eaters, so you can not feed them meat. You should feed them chewy veggies like carrots and cabbages. You can also give them rabbit pellets since they have a lot of nutrients which will help them germinate more powerful and healthy. A supplementary diet of hay and alfalfa can be provided to them as well.
– You must decide if you wish to keep indoor or outdoor bunnies. If you want to raise outdoor rabbits then you should ensure you offer protection for them. You must build them shelter and a safety fence. Bunnie houses should be made from metal cages or wood cages because rabbits can eat on the wood.
Rearing rabbits is not the easiest thing to do but at the same time its not that difficult. Just look after them by giving them proper housing, feeding them right and also some little bit of cuddling.
